split cv boots

I posted this in the general tech forum but there are some smart diesel folks out there. Can anyone tell me where to find cv repair boots that have a side seam that can be bolted closed. My car is a 81 240D. I've seen "universal" ones but I want ones that are a specific fit for my vehicle. Does anyone know of universal ones that are a proper fit? This is intended to be a temporary fix until I can install the new axles which I already have. The boots are torn but the joints aren't making much noise and there is only a small amount play in the axle when you turn it with your hand. If I can find the boots, how can I clean the joints before I install the boots and grease? Should I drench the joints with parts cleaner? Thanks for your good advice.

I have just fitted universal split CV rubber gaiters to one of my vehicles.

These were not bolted together but have a tongue and groove seam that is welded together with the black 'superglue' that is supplied with the kit. The project went very well and the welded seam is the strongest part

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.
